Generalized Linear Randomized Response Modeling using GLMMRR

  title={Generalized Linear Randomized Response Modeling using GLMMRR},
  author={Jean-Paul Fox and Konrad Klotzke and Duco Veen},
Randomized response (RR) designs are used to collect response data about sensitive behaviors (e.g., criminal behavior, sexual desires). The modeling of RR data is more complex, since it requires a description of the RR process. For the class of generalized linear mixed models (GLMMs), the RR process can be represented by an adjusted link function, which relates the expected RR to the linear predictor, for most common RR designs. The package GLMMRR includes modified link functions for four… Expand

RRreg: An R package for correlation and regression analyses of randomized response data
The randomized response (RR) technique was developed to improve the validity of measures assessing attitudes, behaviors, and attributes threatened by social desirability bias. The RR removes anyExpand
Item Randomized-Response Models for Measuring Noncompliance: Risk-Return Perceptions, Social Influences, and Self-Protective Responses
Randomized response (RR) is a well-known method for measuring sensitive behavior. Yet this method is not often applied because: (i) of its lower efficiency and the resulting need for larger sampleExpand
Fitting Linear Mixed-Effects Models Using lme4
Maximum likelihood or restricted maximum likelihood (REML) estimates of the parameters in linear mixed-effects models can be determined using the lmer function in the lme4 package for R. As for mostExpand
Generalized Linear Mixed Models
This article provides an overview of generalized linear mixed models (GLMMs), how they are fit to data, and the inferences possible when using them. GLMMs are a class of statistical models thatExpand
Covariate Randomized Response Models
Abstract The randomized response technique (RRT) is a survey procedure that requires respondents to decide randomly whether to respond to a sensitive question in its positive or negative form (WarnerExpand
The estimation of item response models with the lmer function from the lme4 package in R
In this paper we elaborate on the potential of the lmer function from the lme4 package in R for item response (IRT) modeling. In line with the package, an IRT framework is described based onExpand

A structural multilevel model is presented where some of the variables cannot be observed directly but are measured using tests or questionnaires and it is shown that certain model checks and model comparisons can be done using the MCMC output. Expand
Mixture randomized item-response modeling: a smoking behavior validation study.
A Bayesian latent variable framework is proposed to evaluate the diagnostic test accuracy of the questionnaire using the randomized-response technique, which is based on the posterior densities of the subject's smoking behavior scores together with the breath test measurements. Expand
A nonlinear mixed model framework for item response theory.
It is shown how a variety of IRT models can be formulated as particular instances of nonlinear mixed models, and the unifying framework offers the advantage that relations between different I RT models become explicit and that it is rather straightforward to see how existing IRT Models can be adapted and extended.
